Hi everyone, I just read this in the body of the Paula Burch site:
"Some fabric paints can also be set simply by time. If you wait at least a month before washing the painted fabric, the paint may be as permanent as if you had ironed it."
This is what I very much want to do. I hate nothing else worse than heat setting.
Could you guys please get specific about the paints/inks that work with this technique.
Right now I am using some Speedball Fabric Screen printing ink. I waited two weeks after printing a skirt for my daughter and hers seems to be permanent - but one I did for myself seems to have faded a bit more.
Do y'all have any experience with Versatex "No Heat" Fixer?
I have some that I used for a small art quilt, but it will likely not ever be washed so I can't report results. I have had it for about 2 years? and now the consistency looks a little funny. Should I still use it? Has anyone tested it?
